Update. @stuholden will have a scan on right knee before heading to the US for an assessment on the resurfacing of last summer’s injury.

That’s the word from England after the latest in a series of heart-wrenching moments for electric US midfielder Stuart Holden, as he hurt his knee with Bolton’s U-21 team during his first match back in Wanderers colors.

He’s headed back to the U.S. to meet with the same surgeon who operated on his knee after he was injured in the Gold Cup. If that sounds like bad news to you, it’s striking us the same way.

It’s hard-to-read stuff for Holden supporters, who recently got the good news that Bolton was going to stand by their man and offer a new deal to the oft-injured 28-year-old. Alas, our hero is standing tall in the face of more adversity, putting this on Twitter:
